Quick Start Entrepreneur
This Quick Start Entrepreneur program includes the 10 most important and essential sessions from our Starting a Business and Business Expansion courses, to help you accelerate your entrepreneurial education.
Students who complete these 10 sessions and pass the final with a score of 80 or higher will earn a Certificate of Completion and digital badge from Santa Clara University, just as with our other courses.
We are also including six bonus sessions on new topics that can help support your business. These sessions are not required to earn your Certificate for the course. New topics Selling, Controlling Costs, and Making Ethical Decisions were developed by MOBI Executive Director and SCU Professor of Information Systems and Analytics, Drew Starbird, Ph.D., along with his colleague and MOBI instructor David Aune. Two additional topics were developed in partnership with Santa Clara University’s Ciocca Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship: Business Storytelling and Adapting in the Midst of Change. The Microfinancing session was created by Long Le, Ph.D. from SCU's Leavey School of Business. Available NOW!
